SNAPPED: Explosive Shark Attack Shocks Tourists

3 years ago10.6K views

A POWERFUL great white shark unleashes an explosive attack on a helpless baby seal. Photographer and dive tour operator Rainer Schimpf, 48, captured this display of awesome power while shark spotting in Mossell Bay, South Africa. Great whites can breach at speeds of around 20 mph and hit their prey with the same force as a car crash. The shots were taken in February 2016, when brown fur seal puppies are in abundance in the area. The wildlife photographer also explained that seeing a breach attack of this kind is extremely rare.
